Manchego Cheese- from Spain

Imported from Spain Manchego DO Cheese 10 oz wedge

The Manchego is produced in the La Mancha region of Spain, which is also home to Don Quixote. It is made from unpasteurized sheep's milk. It is one of the popular cheeses from Spain, made from sheep's milk. It also comes under the PDO guidelines.

The traditional use of grass molds leaves a distinctive, characteristic zigzag pattern on the Manchego cheese. Authentic Manchego is only made from the Manchego sheep's milk. Manchego cheese is made from both pasteurized and unpasteurized milk.

The rind is inedible with a distinctive, traditional herringbone basket weave pattern, pressed on it. A typical ear wheat pattern is pressed onto the top and bottom wheels of the cheese.

PS- Don't be tricked get the real Manchego, otherwise you’re bound to be disappointed.An example of an official Manchego cheese D.O. label Look at the back of the wheel to find an official D.O. tab labeling it Manchego. Without that, the cheese is a fake! Watch out especially for “Manchego-style” cheese, which comes with no guarantees of even being similar to real Manchego.
